There are so many ways to serve this sweet whipped ricotta recipe. My favorite way is to spread it over toast.

At many stores you will find both low fat ricotta and whole milk ricotta. It is important to choose whole milk or full fat ricotta for this dip to make sure it is thick and creamy. Using a low fat ricotta will result in a thinner dip.
